About the Seminar
This program qualifies for 2.0 MCLE credit hours, including 2.0 LEPR credit hours.
 
This important seminar, featuring USC Law School Dean Rob Wilcox, Lesley Coggiola and Natalie Bluestein, is a FREE seminar to all members of the Fee Dispute Board. The program has been accredited for 2.0 MCLE hours, including up to 2.0 LEPR hours and will cover South Carolina laws related to attorney fees and to the resolution of fee disputes.

We are also webcasting the program but because of the agreement we have with our online business partner, InReach, we are not able to offer the webcast free to members. So in order to take the advantage of these free CLE hours, you must attend the program live in Columbia. You are encouraged to use the attached Registration Form so that we will know how many copies of the course materials to print. You may, of course, simply walk in to the seminar without pre-registering, but please be aware that you may not receive course materials at the time of the program.
